CBD (Cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive compound extracted from the leaves & flowers of the cannabis plant. Unlike its neighbouring THC compound, CBD does not make you feel high and may counteract the psychoactivity of THC.
Cannabinoid receptors form part of the endocannabinoid system (ECS), So “endocannabinoid” simply means cannabis-like substances that naturally occur inside us.
The ECS itself is made up of three parts:
Receptors in the nervous system and around your body that endocannabinoids and cannabinoids bond with
Enzymes that help break down endocannabinoids and cannabinoids
Not only is the ECS a natural part of our bodies, it’s a crucial one.
Just like the electronics in a car or plane, your body works continuously to monitor important levels and functions in your body. Is your temperature too high, too low, or just right? Are your hormone levels what they should be? Is your heart beating too fast?
When something is operating outside of the right range, your body activates the ECS to help correct it. So, whenever you’re hot and begin to sweat, thank your ECS for working to cool you down.
The ECS does this via cannabinoid receptors found in select tissues. Cannabinoid receptors are believed to be among the most plentiful in our central nervous system, and some researchers hypothesize that we could have a third, undiscovered one, as well.
Then, once the endocannabinoids have done their job and brought things into balance, certain enzymes come along to break them down and prevent them from going too far and upsetting the balance in the opposite direction.
We’re already seeing a lot of research on cannabinoid-based treatments and we’re likely to see more as we gain a better understanding of the system and the substances.
Yes! In Great Britain, CBD is legal if it has less than 0.2% of the psychoactive tetrahydro-cannabinol, THC.
There are some CBD products that contain THC, but only in tiny amounts. In fact, UK law dictates that CBD products contain no more than 0.2% THC.
You can NOT overdose on CBD, and our CBD oil is specifically designed to help you with pain management, nausea, reducing inflammation and relieving anxiety and stress.
The COR (CBDOilReview.org) Serving Standard is 25 mg of CBD taken twice a day, so it’s recommended that you don’t exceed this level until you’re comfortable with the product
The COR also recommend that you try increasing the dosage by 25 mg every 3-4 weeks until you start to feel better and your symptoms show signs of improvement. When this happens, you’ll know you’ve found the right balance for your body and can continue to use CBD at this level.
